My  big, sweet girl turned 7 this year.  I can still so vividly remember the day that she was born.  I can honestly say that is one of the absolute best days of my life.  She made my dream of being a mother come true.  I love her so much and am so grateful for her.

Her birthday fell on a school day, so, as you can see from her picture, we made sure that everyone at school new it was her special day.

I had lunch with at school and we shared some treats with her class.  I really think she just loved being the center of attention.

Later that night we got together with our friends the Kreugers, Their son Matthew is Mikayla’s best friend, and according to Mikayla, her future husband. : )  We took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese – that was quite the adventure.  Mikayla had a great time, and that is all that matters, right?

It was a fun night!

The next day, we got together for a little family party at my parent’s house.  Mikayla is such a lucky little girl to have so many people that love her!

I don’t have pictures right now from her family party (my little sis did all of the picture taking and I haven’t had a chance to get them from her yet).  I will update this post once I do, though!

Mikayla is growing up so fast and is really turning into a sweet and thoughtful young girl.  She is a WONDERFUL big sister!  I love just spending time with her and hearing all of the fun stuff that is on her very imaginative mind.   I love her so much!
